Elektron Technology has launched a wireless food safety monitoring system to help reduce foodborne illness.
Checkit sends alarms to PCs, tablets or smartphones if there is a problem with food temperature, door status or humidity.
The firm said the device reduces the risk of human error and speeds up time-consuming and costly Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point (HACCP) processes and reporting.
All data is time-stamped and downloaded to a centralised database, which automatically generates food safety compliance reports, along with a full audit trail, explained Elektron.
Dr. Martin Nash, product manager at Elektron Technology, said: “A faulty refrigerator alone can result in thousands of dollars of food spoilage, while a food borne illness or failure to meet HACCP requirements can damage reputations and lead to costly litigation and in extreme cases, closure.
“Checkit mitigates these risks and saves time, money and energy costs by combining advanced wireless technology with real-time data collection, analysis, reporting and alarm notification.”
